• I am a banking and finance lawyer specialising in housing finance. I have been acting for borrowers and lenders for over 20 years, and represent a broad range of clients including corporate borrowers, registered providers, charitable entities, property developers, banks and institutional investors.

    I advise on all types of loan agreements, security documentation, intercreditor and security trust arrangements, swap transactions and capital market issues. I specialise in supporting and advising clients in the social housing sector to raise funds, whether through short-term revolving credit facilities or longer-term private placements and bond issuance. I also advise on development finance, acquisition finance, off-balance sheet delivery models, joint venture arrangements and restructurings.

    I am recognised for providing commercial and pragmatic advice to clients and for using my experience acting for borrowers and lenders to evolve and document new funding structures.

    I have contributed articles in the housing press, such as Social Housing, Inside Housing, 24 Housing and Local Authority Building & Maintenance.
